I made a solar RC plane which flies by using solar energy. This plane is having solar+battery power for flying.
This is the spec of the solar plane:
Wingspan: 78cm,
weight: 160g,
Battery: 500mah,
Solar power: Short circuit current 3 amp max, open circuit voltage 6V,
Control: 3 channel (using receiver brick that includes 2 servos, brushed ESC, receiver)

For more details please check out my video:



As this plane is having hybrid power I also needed to check power contribution from various sources so I also carried out some tests for overall power monitoring :

I don't have an idea about it as the seller website did not give any information about communication protocol. It works with flysky transmitter, However, it needs to be bind every time we restart the module.

@abhilash_patel,

I have two requests:

1. There is a young member, karthick ashwath, who was trying 2 years ago, to achieve what you have achieved. He has not posted any msg since March last year, but was last logged on in Jan last week. If you send him a PM about your work, it will be an inspiration for him.

2. Even old aero guys like me are happy to learn something new. So please flood us with data about your solar cells - size, source, flexibility, voltage, amps, motor specs, power consumption etc.

It will help me update myself (built experimental solar cells in 1971  Grin)

Thanks and regards

I watched this video. Well made , and your narration was good. I faced issues of Low power when i converted a v911 helicopter into a plane. But i could overcome by using a very high aspect wing. Materials available for me were thermocole and cello tape. Chord length 110mm at centre tapering to 70mm at tips, wingspan 1500mm . AUW= 60gms. My rudder was in the Propwash so it was very responsive. It too was a two channel plane.
